Steamer Clauseus, Brings
GULF HURRICANE AVOIDED
Captain Tells How, Warned lr
Time, He Managed to Steer Clear
of Terrific Storm.
With 6200 tons of bulk snlphnr.
the largest cargo of the kind to come
here to date, the steamer Clanseua
of the Green Star line, arriver at
pier 2, municipal terminal Xo. 4.
Friday night and started discharging-
yesterday morning. When the
discharging is completed the Clauseus
will load a part cargo of ties here
for England, completing, her tie cargo
on Puget sound.
Captain H. Lamb, commander of
the Clauseus. reported yesterday that
he just missed the hurricane that
swept the Gulf of Mexico recently
and inflicted heavy damage at sea
and ashore. A rapidly falling- bar
ometer and an increase in the ve
locity of trie wind, he said, warned
him of the aproach of a hurricane
at the same time that radio advices
reported the formation of such a
storm at about the point toward
which the Clauseus was steaming.
He ordered full speed and proceeded
to the southwest while the storm
cwept to the northeast.
The steamer Clauseus, of 8800
deadweight tons, was the last vessel
built by the Northwest Steel com
pany. This is her first visit here
since she departed in ballast last
January to load general cargo at
San Franeisco for Europe. She has
been in constant service since that
time, according to Captain Lamb, and
has given a good account of her
self. George R. Walker, Seattle agent
for Struthers & Dixon, Pacific coast
representatives of the Green Star
line, was in the city looking after
the interests of the vessel.

The steamer Artigas. of the North
Atlantic & Western Steamship com
pany, represented on this coast by
the Admiral line, sailed at 4 o'clock
yesterday afternoon for Boston and
Philadelphia with a total of 5601
long tons of general cargo. 4500 tons
-of which was laden at Portland and
Columbia river points.
As Portland is the last Pacific
Coast port of call for this vessel, her
manifest gives a good comparison of
the amounts of freight supplied by
other ports. Seattle contributed 350
tons to her cargo, San Francisco 400
tons and San Iiego 351 tons as
against the 4500 tons from Portland.
Freight from this port consisted of
ties, lumber, rubber, packing, saws,
knives, canned salmon, shoes, boilers

rive here will be the Lehigh, due Oc

she put in for repairs on her way

TACOMA MILLS PROSPERING
Lumbermen Getting Along in Spite
of Increased Rates.
TACOMA. Wash., Oct. 1. (Special.)
While increased rail rates have af
fected Tacoma lumber mills like
other mills of the northwest. It is
said that while lumber prices are
low and conditions unsettled the Ta
coma plants have been securing their
share of the trade both in export
. -lines and by rail. This is borne out
by the fairly good amount of busi
ness from Tacoma by vessels during
the lat month and indications that
more tonnage will be filled up here.
The orders, obtained in part by local
firms for England are helping out
considerably and business in the
coasting trade so far, it Is said, is
According to reports received by(
northwest millmen there is little
chance for a reduction in rail rates
for soma time.
Tacoma millmen report in the coast
ing trade several carriers due this
month, chief among them a shipping
board vessel to load ties for Europe
"and the Forest King to load 770.000

Local Shipping Board Officials Re

Removal of Portland from jurisdic

division of the shipping board, be
came an established fact at noon yes

district agent of the operations di
vision, received a telegram from the
head o;:'ice of the shipping board in
Washington, I); C, confirming press
dispatches and directing him to Re

accordingly submitted his first routine
repui-t to San Francisco a few min
utes after the receipt of the telegram,
and it was secretly suspected by
those who knew hii.i to be heartily
in favor of the change, that he may
have delayed sending the report a
few minutes in order to send it to
San Francisco instead of to Seattle.

transfer read as follows: "Effective

COrXTY VOTES NOV. 2 OX BIIX
TO DEVELOP HARBORS.
St. Helens, Rainier and Clatskanie
and Other River Towns Would
Be Benefited." "
A port of "Columbia county, em
bracing- all that county for the pur
pose of facilitating harbor develop
ment at such river towns as St.
Helens. Rainier and Clatskanie, is an
issue for votere of Columbia county
at the election of November 2r. De
tailed plans for the creation of the
new port district are contained in a
communication received from the St.
Helens chamber of commerce, which,
through its port committee, is sponsoring-
It is proposed to place the admin
istration of the affairs of the port of
Columbia county in the hands of A
board of five commissioners, to be
elected from the county at larse". -
In their arguments for the creation
of such a port district, those behTnd
the move point out that port organ
izations exist at Portland. Astoria,
Tillamook. Siuslaw, Newport, Toledo-
Waldport, Umpqua. Coos Bay, Bandon,
Coquille river and Port Orford, and
that all these communities are re
ceiving aid from the federal gov
ernment for their development work,
while'no such assistance can be given
the river towns of Columbia county
because of the lack of a port organ
ization. It is estimated that a tax levy of
1 mill would raise 13,000 in Colum
bia county, and that this sum would
be adeauate for all Immediate needs.
Under the general port act, taxes for
th work of the sort would be 111
ited to 1 per cent of the assessed
valuation of the county, and bond is
sues to 10 oer cent.
The immediate work, outlined for

"A Genuine Business Man."
By C. C. Chapman, Editor and Publisher
TTERBERT GORDON is not like a woodsaw, as
he is a very quiet sort of a man. but he likes
a woodsaw, for by running one for five years in
Lane County, he got his financial start in life.
I had known Gordon years ago as a business man
in Eugene, who seemed to be a live-wire and to
enjoy the respect of other business men. but I
never got a very close line on him until we went
to the legislature last session. He had come to
Portland, some ten years ago, after having sold
out his retail furniture store in Eugene for a
sum said to be $40,000 or $50,000 net cash, and
had engaged in building buildings for sale and
buying old buildings, remodeling them and sell
ing them. The next I heard of him he had
hpught a title and trust company. Then came on
the times that were hard for the realty owner,
but I would hear of him every now and then as
having built a new apartment house or re
modeled some other kind of a building, and sell
ing it. He seemed to be carrying quite a heavy
property load at a time when" property was a
drug, and on top of that was one of the very
few men who had confidence enough in Port
land, and in his own ability, to keep on buying,
building and selling and then buying and build
ing some more.
Then he became a candidate for the legisla
ture. I checked up on his reputation for integ
rity and found it rated first class, and as he was
a considerable taxpayer and had gone through
a lot of business experience, I thought he was
the kind t man .who ought to be sent to the
legislature for the good of state and city. So
"The Voter" supported him, as did other repu
table forces, and he made a fine run and was
At Salem he was a very quiet, modest man,
seldom speaking on the floor, but active in com
mittee work. He had a faculty of sifting any
legislative proposition down to its elements,
grasping the main points as well as the details,
and then being able to discuss it in a quiet, ex
planatory way that made everything clear and
plain. He also had a faculty for judging human
nature and showed not only a preference for
associating with the clean, honorable members,
but also capacity for opposing legislation that
was questionable, and doing efficient work to

The Story of
- Make Him Your
Herbert Gordon is not a boaster. He is a worker a quiet,
efficient business man of high integrity and a clean record.
Wherever he served he MADE GOOD.
Here is a short sketch of "Woodsaw" Gordon which was
published last March in the Oregon Voter. We reprint it for
the information of the voters:
help secure its defeat. He interested himself in
a number of constructive measures and demon
strated unusual effectiveness in getting them
through. All this he did in that quiet way of
his that antagonized few people and yet showed
clearly where he stood. He was no trimmer
was a square shooter. All these things I noted,
and contracted a high opinion of the man as
legislator. . . .
Gordon's whole career has been a fight not
of the noisy, spectacular kind, but of the quiet,
determined kind and to date he has a record for
winning. He was a farm boy near Eugene from
the time he was 14; got some high school edu
cation in that city, and by pitching in the har
vest field, earned $100, with which he got his
start with his steam woodsaw. Within five years
he had bought his father and mother a small
home and accumulated $500, with which he
started in the retail furniture business in
Eugene. He and his wife were the only people
in the store until it grew to the point where
they could hire a clerk. Within nine years the
business had been developed so that Gordon had
built a brick business block to house it- He sold
out, and with $45,000, came to Portland. '
He made money in his building and property
ventures here while the real estate conditions
were good, and then when the slump came, he
didn't quit. He kept right on buying, building .
and selling. Last year, he was one of the few
property-owners who seemed to sense that apart
ment buildings would continue to be in demand,
so in 1917 he built one apartment structure at a
cost of $100,000, bringing in $65,000 of Eastern
money to help do it with; another at a cost of
$42,000, built with the help of some Seattle capi
tal; remodeled another at a cost of $10,000, and
did some other improving. It was assuming a
load that was heavy to carry, but he won out as
usual, and the city is better for his constructive
He is as quiet as ever, mild-mannered and the
reverse of ostentation, and he has sufficient in
terest in public affairs to be willing to stick his
name up to be voted at again and then take on
the burden of the campaign for speaker, and if
elected, assume all the worries of the speaker
ship. And he hasn't forgotten how to saw wood.'
